My Students

I work in a great school with wonderful students. I am the BTSALP Art teacher. This is only the 4th year our school has had an art program and the kids love it. Most of the students have never had an art experience before. It's fun and very rewarding to watch them be creative with new media and processes.

I came into the program with few art supplies and I am slowly adding the necessary items to offer my students a more complete

and authentic art experience.

After introducing students to watercolors and basic white art paper, I would now like them to have the opportunity to paint on real watercolor paper. There is a huge difference in the final product of a watercolor art piece when done on the right paper. To increase the possibility of success and interest in this type of art work, we need the right paper.

We also need basic supplies: oil pastels, charcoal and charcoal pencils, graphite drawing pencils, glue sticks, Sharpies, acrylic paints, and liquid watercolors.

My Project

Successful art is inspired by exposure to a variety of quality art supplies. I want to expand the opportunity for my students to have great art experiences. With varied and quality art supplies, students will be able to create projects with the greatest chance for successful final products. Success inspires the desire to leave comfort zones and explore more materials and techniques, and in turn, builds focused, creative artists. Painting on watercolor paper provides a totally different result than on art paper. Charcoal and erasers is another technique I want to introduce to my older students. We have yet to try acrylic painting, which provides another unique effect and product. Better products equals better results and better artists.
